The Washington State Patrol arrested 22 suspected dangerous sexual predators during a multi-day sting operation in Thurston County this month. "Twenty-two dangerous sexual predators who targeted children in Thurston County were removed from the streets, thanks to a multi-day operation run by the Washington State Patrol (WSP) and several partner agencies," the press release says. Those arrested include one 17-year-old from Olympia and three from Joint Base Lewis McChord. This was the 15th operation known as "Operation Net Nanny," led by the WSP's Missing and Exploited Children Task Force (MECTF), an Internet Crimes Against Children affiliate. From Feb. 15-20, undercover officers used websites and apps to contact to communicate with people interested in having sex with children, said WSP in a news release.
